I always put 3,2lt with a filter swap.

More than that results in oily airbox.
Cheers.

From the manual, pretty sure...

I'm new here, but the manual says to keep the bike level to check the oil (the bike is not level on the center stand), and to screw the dip-stick all the way in to check the level (and, of course to run it till the temp. reads at least 4 bars).
So that might be the problem?

The bike appears level on the center stand. Not on the side stand, for sure, but it looks level on the CS, no?

Well, with my 990 on the center stand, the back tire is about 5 or 6 inches off the ground (and keep in mind that's with the rear shock fully extended, and the front end mildly compresed). I have no idea if it makes any difference. I just said that because somebody mentioned "on the center stand". Obviously, it's level side-to-side.
It's too bloody cold here to go out to the shed and check it.

We seem to get along with each other. Try to get along... you don't need to write anything if you feel you do not understand which model they are talking about.
Cheers.

Dry sump engine, add approximate amount of oil. Run till full operating temperature, ie 20 min ride. Switch engine off, check level, add oil to lower mark. Run to temp and recheck.

If you put too much oil in, syringe or turkey baster..

Done.

The difference in angle between both wheels on the ground & on the centerstand isn't that much, esp relating to oil level on the dipstick.

Set your oil level (per the manual) and note where the oil level appears on the disptick when not fully threaded in to the tank- it's only going to be the 12mm or so (length of the threads) different. Once you know your bike & can quickly check it to make sure you aren't losing/using any it's easy to keep up. No helpers required, no time spent turning the dipstick.

FWIW I always check the level right when I get home after a ride. You can check before you ride next time to see how much oil leaks past the check valve in the tank; in the "bad old days" dry sump engines could fill the crankcase creating hydraulic lock and it can happen to us, if to a usually lessor degree.

The 950/990(Adv/S/R) barely gets the rear off the ground (with stock 21"/18" wheels)... pictures?

Agreed. Just don't run it empty or overfill it; it doesn't take much to keep these engines running. Most of the oil capacity of these engines is to allow air in the oil to escape & to cool the oil.
